In less than a minute, the Installer will easily install Resilient Linux into your PC’s hard drive. You can optionally set a password for encrypting the persistence partition.
You can test/use Resilient Linux in a virtualized environment as well, the same way you are used to do with any other operating system.
System user will be created upon the first boot with the GNOME Initial Setup Tool.
Use sudo for super-cow powers.
:: open source
Resilient Linux and Resilient Linux Installer are free and open-source software, whose development is hosted on GitHub.
Feel free to contribute to the projects.
Resilient Linux is an operating system based on Debian GNU/Linux which features a liveng partitioning scheme, https://liveng.readthedocs.io, originally thought for live operating systems. Resilient Linux, however, is hard drive installable: the liveng compliancy (programs and kernel updates with a readonly system partition) is thus suitable for “indestructible” hard drive installations.
Resilient Linux differs from the LumIT Labs’s liveng definition in the way the readonly second system partition is rewritten: a hook is called at every initramfs update and not only within a kernel package’s postinst. This allows using the standard Debian kernel packages and it’s more robust. Behaviour is accomplished by forking the live-tool package – see the /bin/live-update-initramfs file inside.
